On Saturday, Alex and I hung out at the Westfield Mall in Aurora. We played in the kids' area...

...and in Kidz Funland. Mommy went shopping at Macy's and Daddy watched us.

Then we went to the kids' furniture store so that Daddy and Mommy could look for a bed for Alex. We hung out, monkeyed around, and played with Mommy and Daddy's phones. Daddy ordered a bed, trundle, mattress, and nightstand for Alex. I am going to be so excited when the furniture arrive since Alex and I are going to JUMP on his new bed together! (But shhhh... don't tell Mommy and Daddy that!)

Sunday in Shirland

I went to visit Uncle Mark and Aunt Jennifer in their new house. They have a new baby, and it was fun to see him. I like babies! Grandma and Grandpa came, too, and I played with Grandma. We have muscles!
Big Alex, little Alex, and I ran around the house for an hour like maniacs. When we tired of the house, we went outside. It was a really warm day. We had drinks at the picnic table.

Taste of Standard Market

We went to the fair at the nearby grocery store at noon on Saturday. There was yummy food offered, and face/body painting.
Alex and I started hugging each other in the grocery checkout line.

We went to the furniture store with Mommy and Daddy to look for a bed for Alex. We found cool little cars to ride in.

Green Thumb

Mommy said she is very proud of my green thumb! We harvested all these ripe tomatoes from my tomato plant this evening. Mommy said these are the sweetest grape tomatoes she has ever eaten. They were so juicy and fresh that Alex and I ate nearly the whole bowl!

We went to the zoo today. The monkeys were very active. We saw the anteater in the Southeast Asia exhibit,. The gorillas were together, and we even saw the baby gorilla.

I found a potato bug.

Zoo Time Fun Time

"Alex is my wife! Come here, wife!"
Our selfie taken at the dolphin show.
We watched the geese in the pond.
We took a break for cold drinks.
Alex and I were amazed by the foot massage the folks next to us were using.

I got a bike from Mommy and Daddy for my birthday, and they finally got around to assembling it today after we got a new bike helmet for me. (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, yeah!) 
Alex was also trying to ride his tricycle, but we both found the going challenging, so we quit and decided to run around on the sidewalk. Mommy thought, "Way to go on perseverance, bums!"

Language Stars

My friend Agatha and I got our faces painted in Language Stars today. We are "hu2 die3". It means butterflies in Mandarin.
My friend Susan who teaches me Chinese got me a pretty headband. This type of headband is traditional headwear in China.
